    In the past we were able to fast pass Wishes, I just looked for my fast passes 60 days in advance and Wishes was not available. Have they stopped Whishes as a fast pass? Thank you

    Hi Doris! I have just returned from a wonderful week at Walt Disney World. I asked a parade cast member about the Wishes and Parade Fastpasses as many guests are not seeing them as an option in the future. It appears that Disney is contemplating, or have decided, not to offer them as a selection in the near future. The reasons were not given but apparently this is why it is gone. There are many rumors out there about why and what is going to take the place in those areas but it is all rumor and best to wait for the facts to come out before making judgement.

    I strongly suggest if you are going to wait to view the second parade in the evening, find an alternate spot to watch Wishes in the park. One of my favorite spots is over by Space Mountain which will give you a pretty good unobstructed view. There are wide open spaces there so you won't feel the crowds. It is also a new experience to watch from behind the castle in Fantasyland. We rarely watch from in front of the castle as the crowds make it unbearable and not enjoyable in the least. It is fun to try new spots and compare them later. If you must leave immediately after the show then I suggest you watch from somewhere around the flagpole on Main Street. If you can snag a spot at the Train Station that is every better. These locations will give you quick exit access when the show is done.

    Check out the parks fireworks and parade schedules so you can best prepare your day and evening since you will not be using a FastPass. Park Calendars
